I've been Liebsterized!

The Fair Fiona from Confessions of a Crazed Cattlewoman has bestowed a Liebster upon me.  While I am going to be a poop and not follow through with the whole thing (create questions, spread the award), I will answer her fun questions:

#1- If you were going to travel where would you go?

I would love to travel to meet all the bloggers I know and love.  And I will, as soon as I don't have 65 dependents at home.

#2- What is your favorite time of day?

Early morning.  The earlier, the better. 

#3- Who is the most inspirational woman in your life?

This is a tough one.  I would have to say a certain woman living in a northern state who quilts, homesteads *coughmamapea*, but truthfully?  It would be a woman who is a conglomeration of so many woman I have met through blogs.

#4- If you could change one thing about the world what would it be?

I would like to see an upsurge of compassion.

#5- What is your very favorite food?

Any flavor (without nuts) of ice cream, followed by a potato chip chaser.

#6- Have you been to a movie lately and if so what was it?

I have not seen a movie in a theater since Lincoln and was disappointed with that one.  However, I can still see Omar Sharif's large, dark eyes filling the screen in Doctor Zhivago.  I have never fully recovered and I was in my early teens.

#7- What made you decide to start and maintain your blog?

I had just moved to my first home and started homesteading in a small way.  I didn't know anyone and found a lot of inspiration on the blogs I was reading.  I started as a way to connect and to create a history.

#8- When was the last time you sat down and read a good book?

I have been reading a book I like a lot, about two pages a week.  It's hard to find time to sit for more than 15 minutes (without falling asleep).

#9- What kind of costume would you wear to a costume Ball?

I'd like to be the Lone Rangerette!

#10- What was one thing you had a trouble learning?

Math.  Any form, color or iteration of it.  An iron curtain clangs down in my mind whenever presented with a math problem.

  1. Ha! I received that once, but I don't like to do them either. Had to laugh at falling asleep reading. I sometimes have that problem.

    1. Kristina - The only thing worse (in a good way) is a book that is so good I can't fall asleep and stay up for hours reading it!

  2. You've said in the past that we are sisters of a different mother. I knew we were identical in our "favorite food" but I didn't know we shared the same BIG problem when it came to coming to terms with anything involving working with numbers. Yep, more and more alike I'm finding we are.

    Just for the record, I cringe at being thought of as inspirational to anyone. This very morning round 'bout 5 a.m. (while trying to locate my get-up-and-go) I was thinking of all the ways I still need to shape up. You'd think at my mature (cough-cough) age I'd have it more together. (Does that expression date me? Yep.) There is so much more work to do on the me I want to be. However, I humbly thank you, my dear frister.

    1. Mama Pea - I knew it! Well, you will just have to cringe, as I think you are an inspiration to lots of us. :) xoxo

  4. The guest bed here will always be ready for you. But seriously? Would we want to live a life totally devoid of "dependents"? Not me!

    1. Sue - You can't talk to me after 8P - I am asleep. :)

  6. Thank you for taking the time! I Think I am behind that same iron curtain when it comes to math. What about Franco Nero in Camelot????
    Do take care of the dependents!

    1. Fiona - OOOOH! I forgot about Franco Nero! He's right up there with Omar Sharif in my book!

  7. I had a series of sadistic math teachers who convinced me I was useless. We all have our strengths. I doubt they could milk a goat for example.

    1. Susan - I had a speech teacher who was the Devil Incarnate. I still loathe him and I'm sure he's been dead for years. Heck, I can't even milk a goat - but I am sure I'd be better at it than Mr. Hickey.

  8. It's always good to get to know other bloggers a bit better. :o) I'm not a morning person at all, except for today. My brain kicked on at 3 am and that was that. Usually, I'm no good til about 10.

    1. CM - So, do you stay up late at night, then? I may be up at 4A, but that doesn't mean all cylinders are firing.
